Thai RC Airfield – Overview
Most Thai RC Airfields are staffed 7 days a week and are usually privately owned. Field charges vary from 20baht to 200baht per frequency per day for non members.

The airfields are well staffed and have assistants who will help with the long walks.
For those who like it, the assistants will if asked - start your engine, carry your aircraft to the runway and assist with any pre-flight checks. The assistant will collect it after landing (or crashing) and bring it to your bench and clean it for you – all for a small tip at the end of the day (50 to 100 baht)
